Bhatti says Telangana has decided to end BRS rule over unkept promises

HYDERABAD: Congress leader Bhatti Vikramarka claimed at a public event on Sunday that the people had decided to end the BRS rule for cheating them, alleging that the objectives of forming the Telangana state are yet to be realised.

Speaking at Rangapur of Atchampeta mandal on the 80th day of his padayatra, Bhatti said: “The Backward Classes right from North Telangana to Achampet have made up their mind to bring back Indiramma rajyam. The objectives of the state could not be achieved owing to the loot of Telangana’s wealth by KCR family, ministers and MLAs.”

Bhatti said that the Forest Rights Act remained on paper, while the government has been taking away podu land. Land acquisition for the Umamaheswara lift irrigation project hasn’t been taken up even after around 10 years, he said.

Reiterating the promises of the Congress, Bhatti said, “Soon after the party comes to power, the state will identify the poor without houses and allocate sites for them. Rs 5 lakh will also be given for the construction of the house. We will waive Rs 2 lakh farm loans at one go, increase Aarogyasri health card limit to Rs 5 lakh and supply a cooking gas cylinder for Rs 500.”

Exhorting the people to send the BRS government packing, he promised to abolish the Dharani land portal.

PCC senior vice-president Mallu Ravi said, “The Chief Minister, ministers and MLAs have forgotten that they are public servants and are behaving like feudal lords. The KCR government brought Dharani and took back lands distributed to the poor. It stopped Indiramma houses but did not construct double-bedroom houses as promised. In every way, the BRS government has deceived the people of Telangana.”

The government had been riding roughshod over people, taking away their freedom to express themselves and resorting to oppression by using police force. “Rangapur village will be developed into a tourist spot once the Congress Party comes to power,” he said.
